On January 31 The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program held a second EOI draw for the year. It was specific for candidates figuring in these streams:
• Skilled Worker in Manitoba
• Skilled Worker Overseas, and finally,
• International Education immigration
This program, issued invitations to 456 candidates in three streams to seek the provincial nomination for attaining the PR Status. The three streams use the Expression of Interest system for selecting candidates.
The Manitoba Government requires all eligible graduates, interested to apply for immigration under the International Education Stream of MPNP, to make the registration for an information session prior to submitting the forms.
Additionally, this system involves the candidates to register a profile in this Program and also provide the necessary information regarding work experience, education, language proficiency, and other factors. Eligible candidates receive the score and candidates with the top score receive Letters of Advice to Apply in regular draws.
Making a progress
Furthermore, candidates whose numbers are not specified in the federal Express Entry system received LAAs in the EE Pathway of Skilled Worker Overseas Stream. The EE system manages the candidates' pool for three economic immigration categories in Canada.
These are the:
• Federal Skilled Trades Class
• Federal Skilled Worker Class,
• Canadian Experience Class
Furthermore, the EE candidates who get the nomination from the province also receive 600 additional points in their ranking score. This also serves as an effective guarantee to get the ITA seeking PR in Canada. The eligibility for this pathway requires candidates to have a profile in the EE system as well as in the EOI system of MPNP.
